Our 2015 line-up promises an even more exciting year ahead, with the distribution of some local films, the scope of a sure-shot blockbuster like Spectre plus a very rich variety of other promising titles.?

Sony Pictures India director of marketing Divya Pathak added, ?2014 was a very exciting and challenging year for us in which we took movie marketing where it?s never gone before, to all corners of the   country, with franchises like Spider-Man. We are enthusiastic about   our diverse and unique 2015 line-up and look forward to reaching new heights in marketing innovation.?

Sony Pictures India director of sales Appu said, ?Our fantastic slate in 2015 holds equal promise for both audiences and exhibitors. With the Bond film slated for a release in the next diwali season, we intend to literally light up the box office.?
